Borodin: Prince Igor (In German) - Wächter, Zadek, Hotter, Frick, Zampieri, Malaniuk; von Matacic. Wien, 1960
Listen to a Sample:
- The Viennese spared no expense for this performance of Prince Igor, assemebling a great cast.
- Eberhard Wächter's regal baritone is ideal in the title role.
- Giuseppe Zampieri (a tenor who never really got his due, in my opinion) is excellent as Prince Vladimir.
- Hans Hotter, Hilde Zadek and Gottlon Frick round out the cast.
- The sound is slightly muffled.
